Sep 2014 bottle, opened Dec 2014.

A - Really nice looking beer. Chestnut body with deep copper tones. Fine off-white head has ok retention and lace.

S - Sweet nose. Caramel, yellow raisins, soft warm booze (maybe a light cognac), and light brown sugar.

T - Really nice. Drinks like a bright American barleywine. Earthy woody hops, caramel, burnt chocolate, sweet macerated raisins, honey, and warm liquor.

M - Smooth, soft, medium-light body with appropriately low carbonation.

O - A delicious beer and a great Americanized take on the style.
